Nine women who live in the neighbourhood of the convent or who work with Sisters of Mercy in the nearby L.A. Miller Centreaccepted the invitation to learn more about Catherine McAuley and to have a Good Cup of Tea. We began with a prayer followed by the viewing of Circle of Mercy: The Life and Charism of Catherine McAuley. After a brief discussion and response to the video we moved to the dining room where we were served a good cup of tea (and coffee) with warm tea-buns and a variety of jams. As the group was leaving the house a few of them informed us that they were looking forward to Part II. It was a lovely evening enjoyed by all.
